Lemon Brussels Sprouts
The younger the sprouts, the more delicate the flavor is in this recipe. This is a great side dish and colorful when garnished with lemon curls and a little thinly sliced sweet onion.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 15 min.
- 1/2 pound fresh brussels sprouts
- 2 tablespoons chopped onion
- 4-1/2 teaspoons water
